For those that don't know, just about my whole family plays 40k. My wife, until recently, had a very nice Dark Angels army, heavy on the DeathWing and RavenWing. My 11 year old daughter has a Space Wolves Great Company and by 9 year old son just about has a Imperial/Crimson Fist Demi Company. Normally, every year, I allow the kids to pick out a unit to be added to their armies. Last Christmas was a 6 model bike squad and an attack bike.
I had a spare bike a converted up a bike commander for him a couple of years ago, and it has remained his favorite model. Last night I knocked the dust off my yellow paint pots, and put 4 hours into the attack bike. The trick to getting this yellow this bright is to paint almost everything else before that is painted.
Primed Vallejo light grey polyurethane acrylic primer, followed by VGA Sun Yellow.
I then blacked out all areas to be metallics and the tires with GW Abaddon Black. I painted over the leather pouches and seats with VGC Beasty Brown.
All metallic areas were painted BW Leadbelcher. This will follow up with a wash on all metallic/brown parts with GW Nuln Oil.
Once dry, I will use GW Averland Sunset to re-prep any messy areas, and then give all of the yellow areas a thin coat of GW Yriel Yellow. Then the real fun starts.
